With an exhaustive precision, I knew what I wanted for this drawing, so instead of ruminating over inspirational peaks and valleys, I took the image already painted in my mind and positioned her on a much grander scale. The bigger, the better, I thought.
Gweneira is a combination of HB/2B pencils, colored pencils, chalk, and oil pastels on medium 18x24" recycled paper. And regardless the fact that I endured scores of painful, little paper cuts while ruining one of the coziest vintage knit sweaters ever in existence- a sweater I shouldn't have been wearing in the studio- I absolutely adore her. Every time I look at the end result, I find myself gravitating more and more towards the notion of a Limited Edition collection, so today I'm starting my second piece of the 'Snow' series.
